Cf. a sauce boat by this maker in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, illus. in cat.: The Gilbert Collection of Gold and Silver, Los Angeles 1988, Figure 89. Grimwade describes the sculptural quality of his works: "His name is obviously German and it would seem reasonable to think, from the highly plastic quality of so much of his work, that there is some connection with the Meissen porcelain modeller of the same name." (Cf. Grimwade 1990, p. 567.)
